The present house originates in the 15th century but has seen significant remodelling and alteration since. It is red English garden-wall bond brick with a stone slate roof. Originally all timber framed, but the framing of the external walls was replaced in the late 17th-18th century. It is L shaped consisting of the Old Hall and Tudor wing. Of particular note within the Old Hall is the roof of c1480-1520. The roof rafters were originally intended to be seen, as the chamfered floor joists were visible from the floor below. Between 1558 and 1603 a 2 storey wing was added, called the Tudor wing. The parlour has richly chamfered ceiling beams. Upper rooms have small framed walls with wattle & daub infill. Basket arched early 17th century hearth to last floor room.
